Allpa makes simple, high quality toquilla straw accessories, including genuine “panama” hats and totes, all completely handwoven.
The colors of our collections range from natural to bright, sunny, pop colors. We thrive to bring something classic and elegant yet bold to the table, with an artisanal concept and a design aesthetic for the most demanding fashionista.
The products are designed to function for your daily needs, and be the accomplices in your adventures throughout the years.
All our items are 100% toquilla straw, manufactured in Ecuador by a community of women artisans. Our designs come alive through their artistic hands. We are a team.
Allpa means fertile soil, land in quechua, the native language of Ecuador and the Andes. The brand name is a tribute to nature and our ancestral heritage.
One of our main priorities is the environment. All of our external tags and care guides are made with recycled paper, certified by the FSC (Forest Stewardship Council). We want to motivate our audience and help create a culture of unconditional respect towards our planet with various eco-campaigns launched throughout our social media platforms. We also have a very strict animal welfare policy and we do not use any leather in our products. Allpa is a vegan brand.
The brand started in 2010 and we have since exported to Canada, United States of America, Mexico, Italy, England, Japan, Thailand, The United Arab Emirates and Australia.
Personalized product options are available for our wholesale clients. We love to work with other brands that share our philosophy and aesthetic, so we’re open to collaborations and to creating items exclusively for them.
